Artist Reception featuring Jim DeVries
July 6, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Jim DeVries’s life changed in 2016!
After 30 years of doing very little to satisfy his passion for art, in 2016 DeVries borrowed his daughter’s Crayola watercolor set and created his first painting in years; he was hooked! His preferred mediums are now watercolor, acrylic and pen and ink.
Jim DeVries, a self taught artist from Britt, is inspired by his many trips to the forests, fields and lakes of northern Minnesota. As a working naturalist and outdoor enthusiast, DeVries, works hard to create the detail necessary to make the subjects of his artwork anatomically correct. The level of detail he is looking to create determines which medium he chooses.
In July, come to the First Stage Art Gallery at the Lyric Center for the Arts to experience feature artist, Jim DeVries’s, “slice of the Northwoods placed on canvas.”
